Yuma girls golf prepping for 2023 season

Yuma High School girls golf team is trying to get in some outside work.
The players were forced into inside work the first weeks of preseason practice thanks the snowy conditions at Indian Hills Golf Course, as well as cold temperatures. The weather finally cooperated earlier this week, but it also came during spring break, so it was tough to get everyone together.
The program is under the first-year direction of new co-coaches Luke Goeglein and Aaron Prior. Goeglein was star golfer when the boys program was resurrected in the 1990s, and he and Prior are among the best players one will find in Yuma.
Many practices have been at Benjamin Weathers’ MaxD facility in downtown Yuma.
The new coaches have seven out for the girls team this spring. Jailyn Mekelburg and Aspen Chadwick return from last season, and the coaches said both are capable of making it to state. The rest have little golf experience, and some are new to the game. However, the coaches said they are encouraged by what they have seen in the practices.
The other five are Izzy Young, Torrance Cheshire, Danika Dischner, Camila Sanchez and Nadia Carias.
The team’s first tournament is scheduled for Tuesday, March 28, at Holyoke, weather permitting.
